The Kingdom of Hakketomat is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jasan with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, infamous sell-swords, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 13.544 billion Hakketomatians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palais d'Entreprise. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hakketomatian economy, worth a remarkable 3,774 trillion Hugs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 278,707 Hugs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,560,364 per year while the poor average 3,153, a ratio of 811 to 1.

Multilingual concierges man empty inner city apartment blocks, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem, and corrupt industrial practices are spreading like a plague. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Hakketomat's national animal is the Koala, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hakketomat is ranked 4,224th in the world and 43rd in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 7,843.04 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
